I am especially interested in literary fiction, LGBTQ+ fiction and horror. I offer free sample edits (1000 words) for independent fiction authors to check whether we are a good match. Recent clients: Penguin Random House (Dutton), Orbit, Abrams (Amulet Books).
My academic background is in languages, linguistics and literature, and I have experience editing academic texts and manuscripts in the humanities and social sciences (especially literature, linguistics, art and art history), both for books and journals. Some recent academic editing clients are Duke University Press, Cambridge University Press, Newgen, Taylor & Francis (Routledge) and the Spanish Journal of Applied Linguistics. I have also done work for the Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology and Anthropology and Education Quarterly (for Ideas on Fire).
I have copyedited conference subtitles and exhibition catalogues for Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, so I have experience working on highly illustrated titles.
I have also worked on self-help books.
I have proofread ELT textbooks for Compass Publishing.
I have substantial experience copyediting and proofreading a magazine in-house (The Vegan), where I also worked on recipes extensively.
I have in-house experience at a large charity copyediting and proofreading all sorts of communications, both print and digital (e.g. websites, articles, report, blogs, campaigns and fundraising material, AGM documentation, infographics and fact sheets).
I am fluent in Spanish and have experience editing English translations of Spanish books as well as English books about Spanish. I can also copyedit and proofread Spanish texts and manuscripts.
